    Re: Rear spoiler

    I was always a fan of the stock spoiler that sits right on top of the third brake light.
    I would look for an OEM one, rather than aftermarket unless you need to save a few bucks. But then you have to contend with the spoiler possibly not being accurate in dimensions.

    Have you come across any examples of that being a problem? Every post I've ever seen about the Ebay spoilers is that they fit just fine and look like the OEM spoiler.

    What spoiler is that, and how does it look when it's not installed on a weight bench?

    I've seen a couple (not all) pics here on the forums where the Ebay versions didn't seem to sit up to the end of the taillights. As long as it centered it wouldn't be a problem or look bad...

    I'm just a bit neurotic

    Re: Rear spoiler

    Thanks for the input guys, been looking for a while. Price (within reason) isn't a problem. Been looking online for awhile, the weird thing is most of the websites use the exact same picture for "their" product. I'm in Hawaii, so dealing with people over here is there is never free shipping, and if problems arise, it's real hard to get things fixed. Gonna check the dealer route soon. Any feed back on Car ID?

    I've got the OEM spoiler. I didn't know until I joined this forum that you could get a V without the spoiler.

    I like the OEM one.

    Did you
    A) swap out with a different spoiler?
    B) originally install with two-sided tape only?
    C) change out the trunk lid?
